Stanley Cup or gold medal?

It's a pretty big question, and certainly a topical one, as the NHL's best head to Sochi to compete in the Olympic hockey tournament.

The SportsTalk Live panel tried to answer that very question on Tuesday.

"For me, I'd want the gold medal. It would be awesome," CSN's David Kaplan said. "To have U.S.A. on your jersey and representing everybody, it would be great."

The Chicago Sun-Times' Seth Gruen first joked he'd want the Stanley Cup due to its financial implications, but after he was pressed by Kaplan, Gruen settled on the medal, too.

"Then I'd probably want the gold medal," Gruen said. "I think there's something special about representing your country and the pride of doing that."

So what would you rather do? Would you rather hoist the Stanley Cup or stand at the top of an Olympic podium?
